ART PAPERS 44.04 - Summer 2021

Regular price $10.00 Sale


ART PAPERS Summer 2021 explores practices that reimagine or represent speculative, non-normative forms of masculinity. The issue explicitly centers LGBTQIA+ and men/masculine artists of color. These creators have long understood that masculinity has been constructed at the tangled intersection of heteronormativity, capitalist logic, and white supremacy. This issue seeks out practices that not only interrogate masculinity, but reimagine it: ones which move beyond critique toward propositions, reconfigurations, and liberatory ways of being masculine.
